Tare: "Clubs Like Juventus, Roma, Milan, And, Inter Should Be Bankrupt Now. But They Are Alive Because The System Needs Them."

October 16, 2022

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare said some of Serie A's big teams should have gone bankrupt because they have been losing money, sparking controversy. However, the big clubs can only be "saved", because the Italian league system still needs these clubs.

At a seminar at the LUISS University in Rome, Igli Tare spoke on the topic of the European football industry.

One of the issues raised at the seminar was the recent development of Paris Saint-Germain's losses, with the Ligue 1 giants officially announcing a loss of 300 million euros last year.

Tare then sought to compare the losses suffered by Paris Saint-Germain to the contestants in Serie A, where many big clubs from the Italian league have lost games but have "survived" because of the system.

"In Italy, there are only four family-owned clubs left: Udinese, Atalanta, Lazio, and Napoli," Tare said, as quoted by Football Italia.

"The club I'm in belongs to that kind of ownership."

"Multinational corporations that run football clubs only care about commercial revenue and you miss out on the fun and love of the sport."

"The funds are calculated algorithmically and they don't care about the history of the club and the city where the club was founded."

"Clubs like Juventus, Roma, Milan, and, Inter should be bankrupt now. But they are alive because the system needs them."

"It is important for us to have many clubs that care more about long-term projects," concluded the Albanian.

In the 2021/22 season, Juventus happened to break a Serie A record with a loss of 254 million euros.

Meanwhile, Lazio, who were banned from buying new players last summer, has only lost €10m in 2021/22.
